My name is Aaron, and I am a veteran paratrooper for the US Army. I have lived (2yrs or more) in Anchorage AK., Ft Bragg NC., Las Vegas, NV, and I just recently moved back to Vegas from Joplin MO..
I think my personality falls in to the category of "strong silent type". I am very deliberate and introspective. I like to think things through from all possible angles and make the best possible decision. (I know, FUN right?). I think that I am a good guy. I was taught to be respectful of women by my father, and society hasn't managed to erase that yet. That being said, I also like to have a good time. I cuss like a soldier when I am among friends, and I am fiercely loyal to those I care for.
Everybody is in to fitness right? I like to do strength training, and my shoulders back and chest are more developed than some, but I rarely get motivated for cardio. I had to run 2-5 miles a day as a paratrooper, and now I am not running unless something is chasing me (and 8 times out of 10 I will still rather stand and face it).
I was raised in Alaska, where hiking, camping, and fishing are arguably the best in the world, so I enjoy getting back to nature when weather and time permit it. I am an animal lover,and I have been known to rescue or foster various different critters from time to time. I try to be open minded and I believe that the freedom that I fought for should encompass everyone (nationality, creed, color, sexuality, etc). I consider my self to be sapient, and enjoy intelligent conversation as much as pointless silliness.
My sense of humor is what I consider to be my greatest trait (I am sure you can tell from this essay like description of myself). I try to find humor in almost everything, and I would like to find a woman who can appreciate that quality, or even better, share it...
Musically I am all over the place really. I don't discriminate by genre. Basically, if it has a decent beat, and or melody, I am good. I will listen to rock", rap, country, and even some classical fusion or EDM if the mood hits.
When you are good at something, you tell everyone. When you are great, they tell you..
Wise men speak when they have something to say, Fools speak when they have to say something..
Every time I almost think humanity will be okay, I see someone struggle with the self-checkout for 20 minutes.
If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Anything where we can get to know each other, and have a good time laughing. Maybe pool, mini golf, or bowling; A little friendly competition to break the ice. Or something adventurous might be fun like skydiving or bungee jumping. I am also fine with a formal dining atmosphere or a show. I think it should be something we both enjoy, if we are having a good time, and laughing together, it really doesn't matter what we do. I will start the date with a flower, and hopefully end it with a kiss.
